Everson Walls one of 4 Cowboys among 54 senior, contributor semifinalists for 2023 Hall of Fame

The Dallas Cowboys have a long and storied history in the NFL, having won five Lombardi championships and a number of players and contributors honored by the Pro Football Hall of Fame

In the previous selection process, the organization was denied a new entrant, as Demarcus Ware was (surprisingly for some) not included in his first year of eligibility.

The club’s members total to 20, with another 8 affiliated with the team but with strong ties to other organisations.

On Thursday, the HoF committee announced the reduction of the eligibility to one of its two lists, the senior, coach and contributor category.

This list differs from the primary list, where players are eligible for five years after playing their last game and remain eligible for a window of 20 years.

Of the 54 semi-finalists in this category, four are men belonging to the Cowboys organization. The list includes the person who started it all.

Dallas Cowboys owner, Clint Murchinson, left, general manager Tex Schramm, center, and Irving, Texas Mayor R. Dan Matkin takes a look at the Cowboys’ new playing field in Irving, Texas, May 14, 1971

The stadium is to be ready for play on August 14, 1971. The $25 million arena will have 65,000 seats, with all seats under one roof. The playground is under the open sky.

The infamous story of the creation of the Dallas Cowboys franchise Voting to allow Murchinson into the NFL fold includes buying Hell to the Redskins fight song, reinforcing Washington’s George Marshall.
